Well, that was epic! I think that’s definitely a record. 10 parts! I’ve put together a quick index, broken down by city. Just for a change, for these blog entries I’ve made all the pictures 560 in the post but if you click on them they will be bigger. Figured these were particularly good and […]

Phew! It comes to an end here! Saturday 23rd April Up early today, we were booked in on the Neighbours tour! To many this is both bogus and sad but we freakin’ loved it! We love Neighbours and Home And Away. We Tivo them. We couldn’t NOT come to Aus without doing this tour. First […]

Wednesday 20th April It’s raining. Melbourne is a lot like England. It’s really green but I think to get that, it needs the rain and over the last couple of years it’s been pretty wet for them. Today we opted for the art gallery. Always good to have one of these on hold for a […]

Monday 18th April So, we’re here in Melbourne on the final leg of our trip. I’m a bit tired of not really being able to unpack properly and repacking every weekend but y’know mustn’t grumble! Today the missus and I went our separate ways, she had friends off the 1nt0rn3tz to meet and I went […]

Friday 15th April Today we went on a cruise! I managed to persuade the missus to get on another boat and we went on an organised cruise down to Peppermint Bay. Check out the boat we went on: There were several price tiers. Some with lunch, some without and some where you got to sit […]

Tuesday 12th April Today we flew out to Hobart, Tasmania. I’m not sure how, but my bags had gone over the weight limit. I think I packed really badly and for ease put stuff in the suitcase so we went over the 46kg limit. As a result I got charged $10. But then an attendant […]

Sunday 10th April Today started off bright and sunny, descended into being cloudy and humid and ended with one mother of a rain storm! I wish I’d seen that coming but instead we got absolutely soaked walking home in it. Cheap season eh?! While the weather was good we went to see the Hyde Park […]

Friday 8th April We needed a day off. Sydney is deceptively sized. It’s too small to bother with public transport but its grid system means you don’t get the diagonal cut throughs you get in London so you end up walking a billion kilometres each day. Add that to the jetlag and you get a […]

Thursday 7th April Today has been wonderful. What a scorcher! We decided to investigate the botanical gardens in more detail. In hindsight I kinda wish we hadn’t!! It’s absolutely brilliant but it’s full of bats and spiders and weird birds and plants. It’s all a bit much to take in! We walked in and had […]

Wednesday 6th April Today we’re feeling pretty jetlagged. We woke up at about 8am which isn’t too bad given the time difference but still felt knackered. We went on the hunt for food and found a lovely café called Zinc Café. We got a really nice fried breakfast. How English?! After that we scouted for […]

I have just been to Australia. It was brilliant! There was pretty poor access to the internet over there so I blogged it all in Word as I went along. Now I’m uploading it all. At the end I will create a summary post with all the links so you can read in order. Bear […]
